OTHER USEFUL INFORMATION
COLLEGE REFUSING TO SETTLE THE ARREARS BEFORE MOVING OUT
We had a matter wherein the tenants who are a college specialising in teaching our next generation decided to quit on the landlord without payment of rental in arrears. Whilst they were moving out we successfully executed the Writ of Distress on them and they had to pay the rental in arrears in full.
EVICTION- WHAT IS THE ROLE OF THE POLICE
In the process of evicting the tenant, can I seek the help of the police? The short answer is no.
I have seen quite a number of articles telling the landlords that they can always invoke the right of “self help”, that is, take the matter into their own hands and evict the non paying tenants themselves. Some advice the use of a notice outside the demised premises and take possession in the presence of the Police officer.
This will work IF the landlord is able to first of all locate the police office and secondly request the police officer to be present to testify as a witness on his behalf during the hearing. If the landlord can do neither all the advice given will amount to nothing.
EVICTION SELF HELP WHAT IS THE RISK FACED BY THE LANDLORDS
If the landlord should enter the demised premised premises without a court order, even if it is in the presence of a police officer; if the tenant should accuse the landlord of removing properties belonging to the tenant without a court order, the landlord may be liable to pay damages.
Therefore do not enter without a court order.
